    Pros

    Pros - Cant thing of any

    Cons

    Regular lay offs with a long trail of dead bodies. Be extremely cautious of any promises or incentives made to try to get you to sign up. Everyone is protecting their own interest versus making good choices in order to prevent from being the next to go.

    Advice to Management

    Change the corporate culture


  2. Enduring commitment to survival and progress

    Pros

    Very high levels of accountability, strong commitment to continuous improvement, stable work force. Very experienced management team.

    Cons

    A bit tight with cash, deteriorating human resources practices. Misalignment of bonus system with overall corporate and department success. Compensation is generally good, more or less aligned with the remainder of the sector.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful of alienating highly experienced people. You need them. Clean up the bonus system, it does not seem to be well aligned with overall corporate performance.
